C2G has announced that it’s now offering a complete family of HDMI HDBaseT extenders for the delivery of uncompressed HDMI video and audio signals — in addition to VGA, IR, RS232, USB-C, USB 2.0, and analog audio — over a single network patch cable to displays in conference rooms, huddle rooms, classrooms, lecture halls, and more.
“Our HDMI HDBaseT extenders are the perfect solutions for any commercial installation where AV signals need to be distributed — with USB and control signals alongside them — beyond the length limitations of standard HDMI cabling,” says Jennifer Crotinger, product manager at C2G, a brand of Legrand. “For integrators, the devices embody the four pillars that set C2G apart from other solutions on the market: testing, quality, convenience, and confidence.”
The C2G family of HDMI HDBaseT extenders includes 16 transmitters, receivers, and transmitter/receiver kits, all with power adapters. Utilizing the latest HDBaseT chipset technology, the devices support resolutions up to 4K at 60 Hz (4:2:0) and extend single or dual HDMI sources up to 130 feet or 328 feet over a single Cat6a cable. The family includes support for:
— VGA resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz
— Visual lossless compression (VLC)
— USB-C pass-through
— USB 2.0 pass-through for KVM control of devices such as USB cameras, keyboards, and mice
— One-way and bi-directional IR and RS232 pass-through
— Analog audio pass-through
— Multichannel audio formats including PCM 2.0/5.1/7.1, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS:X
— API command control through transmitter Micro USB ports or receiver RS232 ports
— Automatic switching between input sources
— CEC pass-through for central control of all HDMI-compatible devices
Transmitters are offered in box and wall plate form factors, with wall plate transmitters available in single- and dual-gang configurations. Receivers are available with built-in scaling, in addition to S/PDIF outputs for the de-embedding of connected audio devices for audio distribution.
All devices are HDCP 2.2-compliant to ensure a secure connection between the source and display. For added flexibility, Power over Cable (PoC) and Power over HDBaseT (PoH) support mean that only one power adapter is required at the transmitter or receiver to power both units.
C2G’s HDMI HDBaseT extension family is available through retailers and direct to users from C2G, each backed by a five-year warranty.
